The 5th National Mathematics Summit (NMS) is a series of pre-conference sessions hosted before the 46th Annual NOSS Conference.

During the Summit, join Pathways team members for informative sessions on making math classrooms more equitable and fostering collaboration in online and hybrid-format math courses.

Pathways Presentations at the 5th National Mathematics Summit

Teaching math for equity: Cultural relevance and inclusion in the classroom

As math educators, we aim to create classroom environments that provide equitable learning opportunities so that every student has the support and resources necessary to succeed. In the Carnegie Math Pathways, we have learned that cultural relevance and inclusion are key elements in the design of these kinds of learning experiences. This presentation will share strategies and approaches that Carnegie Math Pathways faculty use to make learning relevant, nurture students’ sense of belonging, and center student thinking and agency in order to provide each student with daily opportunities to meaningfully engage with peers, the instructor, and mathematics.

Promoting meaningful collaboration in online and hybrid math instruction

Evidence from in-person learning experiences shows that when barriers to belonging are removed, students are more likely to form social ties, overcome challenges, and ultimately succeed. How do we translate this to online instruction? Join us to learn about creating opportunities for students to build meaningful connections in online/hybrid mathematics learning experiences.
